Amber Hofner

Amber is a freelance writer from Toronto, Ontario. Her passion for holistic living has opened up many doors, allowing her to contribute to various online and print publications on topics including mindfulness and meditation, homeopathic health and vegetarian nutrition. In her free time she loiters at cafes and yoga studios throughout the city and occasionally ventures to the east coast to visit family and eat mass amounts of lobster.


Lindsay Robeson

Lindsay and her husband Tom are converted plant-powered parents. They have two daughters — Piper who is two and Quinn who is eight months. Their journey started in June of 2017 when Lindsay was pregnant with their second daughter. They quit meat and all animal products cold turkey. After eating the same boring salad for every meal, she and Tom quickly realized they needed to liven it up and make food fun again. Today, Lindsay is passionate about the healing power of plants, and loves sharing recipes to encourage other families to embrace a healthy lifestyle.

Sara Birin

Sara was born and raised in Manitoba, Canada – a place she still calls home. She is a proud natural wellness educator with Young Living and is very passionate about living chemical free and helping others do the same. She has been writing since she was a young girl and has always felt happiest when putting pen to paper. After being diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorder, she took to using natural, plant-based products to improve her quality of life. Now she is on a mission to share her story and help others in all different walks of life.
